Individuals differ greatly in their responses to art situations. The exact nature of this sensitivity is not known but the findings of this investigation indicate that it is more acquired than innate. The highest degree of response comes from those that combine early childhood experience of correct esthetic types with later cognitive acquirements. The function itself is fundamental to artistic production and art criticism.
